CHF's New Member Development Program is a semester-long training program focused on building soft and technical skills specific to the finance world. In addition to weekly meetings and deliverables, new members will also benefit from formal and informal mentorship and frequent educational opportunities outside of the program.
Note that this program is specifically targeted towards new members who want to learn or brush up on their finance skills. Applicants who have more experience will be considered for placement directly into one of our funds (and bypass the New Member Development Program).
Week 1 & 2 - Professional Development
Week 3 to 10 - Technical Training
Our new member instructors are high-performing upperclassmen with experiences in investing, banking, and consulting.
